RTV6 Traffic Reporter Lauren Casey is keeping an eye on the roads in her hometown.
The Center Grove native grew up watching RTV6 with her family and is excited to join the team on "Good Morning Indiana." She is currently working to complete her bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism at Franklin College this December.
While Lauren may be one of the youngest members of the RTV6 news team, she has been fortunate enough to complete a variety of internships throughout her college years.
She has a strong interest in Indiana politics and government after working as a multimedia journalist for TheStatehouseFile.com for two years. TheStatehousefile.com is an online publication powered by Franklin College students.
Lauren also interned with WTHR during her junior year and focused primarily on the upcoming election and other political issues.
Her passion for the media industry fits perfectly with her love for her local community. Every week, Lauren goes back to her high school to help coach the varsity dance team -- a team she helped lead while at Center Grove.
This year, she plans to coach the new middle school teams and is looking forward to helping other young girls find their place in a large school system. Lauren also works as a teacher and choreographer at The Dance Refinery in Indianapolis.
Lauren was one of the Scripps Howard Foundation scholarship recipients at Franklin College, which allowed her to intern at RTV6 this past summer. She felt right at home in newsroom from her very first week. She is looking forward to working alongside award-winning journalists right here in Indianapolis.
